Spacey News and Deals – 10/25/12
Hey y’all, happy Thursday! There’s a lot to cover today, so I’m just gonna jump right in:
- First off, early this morning, Star Citizen reached its funding goal of $2 million from combined on-site and Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns. There’s a note from Chris Roberts himself on Kickstarter discussing the milestone of Kickstarter reaching its funding goal so quickly, as well. Finally, they have a new document outlining the specific ships, which is a cool read.
- Over on the Strike Suit Zero Kickstarter, they have a new video showing dialogue being recorded for the game.
- Finally, the Bonus Damagecast podcast has some interviews from IndieCade 2012, including the FTL devs.
Yeah, that’s it for news. I know, right? But wait, there’s more. This next section outlines some new spacey games I found on Kickstarter, so while not “news”, technically, I’m including it to raise awareness for ‘em. These include:
- Mercenary Dark – A “space action/RPG” with 26 days left at less than 1% funded.
- Mobile Bridge Project – Not a space game itself, but a mobile bridge built for use with the Artemis bridge sim. 14 days left, less than 1% funded.
- Exodus: Grand Melee – A “4x space mmorts mech combat and empire building simulation game”. That’s certainly a mouthful. 30 days left, well less than 1% funded.
Next, we have a buncha deals today too:
- The Free Taskforce, Flatspace IIk and Outliner Bundle includes the spacey game Flatspace IIk and a couple of others for just the price of the first game, $24.
- GamersGate has a smattering of spacey game deals. This includes:
- Endless Space: Admiral Edition for $20.09
- Endless Space: Emperors Edition for $23.42
- AI War Alien Bundle for $4.25
- Gemini Wars for $19.98. This matches a deal on their official site in celebration for their big upcoming update.
- AI War: Fleet Command 6.0 for $2.50

- AI War: Children of Neinzul for $0.50
- AI War Light Of The Spire for $1.25
